Overview of your tour

Strolling through La Candelaria, visiting the Gold Museum, and admiring various sites like the Quevedo Fountain and Bolívar Plaza are just some of the fundamentals when visiting Bogotá. On this layover tour, you will feel like you came to Colombia and Bogotá on vacation, rather than simply passing through. We’ll collect you at the airport and head into Bogotá for a full day of activities and learning about Colombian culture. We will, of course, make recommendations on where to go, but if you have something specific you want to see, let us know, and we can arrange it. After getting your fill of Bogotá (or at least a taste of this vibrant, lively city), we’ll return you to the airport with plenty of time to get through security and to your gate on time.

Please note that the Gold Museum is closed on Mondays. If your tour happens to be on a Monday, don’t worry — we’ll find another fantastic museum to visit, such as the Botero Museum, or another activity that suits you to fill the time.

Though this is the classic route that we recommend, please do not hesitate to let us know upon booking what interests you! We are more than happy to alter the itinerary to incorporate other sights that you would like to see or places you would like to visit.
